REVEAL | CONCEAL #4

Brooch
Bone china porcelain and oxidised silver 925

 

 


This series of jewelry, Reveal | Conceal, aims to depict the solitude of not being able to fully express oneself. These intimate pieces are responses to my own experience of being away from home, alone for years.

In this collection, I have shaped each of the bone china elements by hand, using my fingers and palms to impress the forms and to show one’s physical action and response of the element. The Chinese calligraphy, a traditional writing technique I have practiced for over 10 years, is written or impressed on the inside and backside of the bone china elements. Presenting “Reveal | Conceal”, I wish the audience who cannot read Chinese, to appreciate these unreadable characters as art instead of personal thoughts.
